Why Drain Cleaning is Important

May 25, 2016

It’s springtime and homeowners in Daytona Beach have been organizing their closets, steam cleaning the carpets, and giving the home an intense scrub. But did you remember your drains?

You most likely have a liquid drain cleaning product for when the the kitchen sink is backing up or the toilet won’t drain, but putting a band-aid on the issue often won’t make it go away. Plumbing problems that appear minor usually end up being major problems if they aren’t resolved correctly. Even if you think the problem is just a slow drain, you should have complete drain cleaning to make sure it doesn’t cause damage to the entire system and leave you with a huge (and expensive) problem. Keep in mind, no plumbing issue is ever too insignificant to need a drain cleaning.

There are several reasons why household drains become clogged. For kitchen drains, the most common reasons are going to be pieces of food and oils. Make sure you run your garbage disposal and don’t put things like grease, vegetable peels, and coffee grounds down the drain because they will all make mayhem for your pipes and other plumbing components. For For your showers, tubs, and bathroom sinks, the typical reasons for drain clogs will be hair build up, soap scum, and foreign objects. (Is your kid missing some puzzle pieces or have you noticed that you are missing a necklace?) An annual drain cleaning by a local Daytona Beach expert will help keep these small problems from accumulating and creating a huge plumbing disaster.

Your toilet can also end up clogged by the common issue of using an excessive amount of toilet paper, but also from putting things like floss, band aids, medication, or flushable wipes into the septic system.

If the pipes get clogged, by toys, floss, or anything else, it will possibly also affect the water pressure balance of your complete plumbing system. If you don’t rectify these issues quickly by calling for an expert in drain cleaning, it could leave you with cracked pipes. Or worse, your pipes could totally burst leaving you without any water in your home.

Remember, what goes down can sometimes come up. Regrettably, you might know this already with prior experiences with a clogged toilet, but backing up can also happen in your home’s sinks. Have you ever been washing dishes after a big meal and noticed the water wasn’t draining and that potato you put down there a couple minutes ago is now swimming around? A routine drain cleaning, or an emergency drain cleaning when you first notice the clog, can avoid these situations entirely and prevent your drains from becoming clogged and causing odor to back up into your home along with the water.
